Here Comes the Sun Over the UAE East Coast

One of the advantages of living on the east coast of the UAE is being able to see the sun rising over the Arabian Sea.

The sunrise from Khor Kalba beach is so often spectacular (there are some photos at this link taken on 2 January 2009 when the sun battled to break through the clouds and sea fog).

Every day it is different as the red ball conjures its magic over the waves.

This morning it was a different performance. One view of the sun is pictured here and a short series of pictures is posted at the Facebook link below:

Sun Rising over UAE’s East Coast Today, Facebook, 3 January 2009.

If you don’t live on the east coast, come and visit and get up early enough to see the solar fireworks displays.
